Hope Y'all Had A Great Thanksgiving!

Mr. K and I had not one but two Thanksgiving meals last week. I had an early dinner with one of my uncle's and a late afternoon meal with another uncle. It's almost like being the child of divorce. If I hit one and not the other someone is bound to be pissed and I will end up on a shit list. So I make sure that hit both. Mr. K was kind enough to come along for the ride. We ate lots of traditional turkey grub as well as some spanish food. We got to watch some football too. My pumpkin pies went over well :) Sat was little Ms. K's bday so she went off to see a play with Mr. K and I took little Mr. K to a museum. I was beat by the end of the day. Now I am back at work and then off to HQ for the next few days. CIAO!

Why am I at work?

Nothing going on. Too cold outside. Tired from eating too much turkey. Bleh.


If you can't find it on e-bay it doesnt exist.

Just know I was surfing the internet(s) when I decided to go to mycathatesyou. A really funny site where people send it their crazy cat pics and then the webmaster adds a funny tagline to them. This little ad caught my eye...

Ebay does sell everything! Leo said he didn't think it was funny.


What I am thankful for*

*A little late but better than never!

* My family (as crazy as they may be).
*That I am employed and have a roof over my head (Leo appreciates it too).
*That I am alive.
*That I am loved (Love ya Mr. K)!
*That I got a Cole Haan handbag for 70% off!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.

So I made my two pumpkin pies last nite though I still dont know what they taste like.  I found a great and super-easy recipe on  If you haven't been there you gotta go! They have thousands or free recipes that are rated by users.  In my next life I am gonna be a chef.  Maybe ever a celebrity chef. Speaking of celebrity chefs here is one of my faves (next to Alton of course).

Ahh, Tyler Florence how I lust after thee.  I actually ran into him one time when I was in NYC, at Times Square.  I was totally floored at how good looking he was in person.  I didnt say anything to him just kept on walking though we did make eye contact.  Swoon!

Census Counts Thanksgiving Consumption


WASHINGTON - When Americans tuck into Thanksgiving dinner this week, health-conscious eaters won't be the only ones monitoring how much they eat. The government will be watching as well.

Each year, the Census Bureau' tabulates dozens of obscure facts related to 20 holidays and other observances, generating statistics on everything from how much turkey we eat to how many pumpkins are produced.

For example, most people probably didn't realize that a typical American eats 13.7 pounds of turkey and 4.7 pounds of sweet potatoes each year. Or that 256 million turkeys are being raised in America this year. Or that U.S. exports of cranberries and sweet potatoes help reduce the nation's trade deficit.

For Robert Bernstein, those are the nuggets that feed his imagination. Bernstein is a public affairs specialist at the Census Bureau, and for eight years he has been collecting and disseminating trivia related to holidays and other observances.

For St. Patrick's Day, Bernstein noted that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year. For Halloween, he reported that we eat an average of 25 pounds of candy a year. And on Independence Day, he projected that Americans would consume 150 million hot dogs on the holiday, roughly one for every two people.

"It's amazing the breadth of information we have," Bernstein said. "We touch on so many aspects of the human condition."

The government collects the data to monitor everything from economic output to Americans' health habits, information used to shape public policies and develop private business strategies.
Bernstein culls the holiday information from a variety of government sources, relying, for example, on the U.S. Department of Agriculture for much of the data about Thanksgiving.


Say what?

I called home yesterday to inform them that I was indeed joining them for the annual Thanksgiving meal. (I have to inform my family a few times of things because talking to one member of the household does not guarantee that the message will be passed along). So I make the customary offer of "Can I bring anything"? I was told to bring a pumkin pie. I was like "ookayyy". I have never made one before and I know that the store bought kind is pretty nasty (or at least I have been told). I dont' eat pumpkin as I have bad memories of being force fed it by my grandmother back in the day. So I now have to go out and buy pie plates (because I left mine in Md) along with all the ingredients. Oh YAY! I am so glad I asked. But I guess its a small piece to pay for an awesome Turkey Day meal and football!

Oh and I finally lost a fantasy fottball game after a 7 game winning streak :(

New Title!

I finally had a chance to sit down and think of a new title for my blog. I think it sums me up pretty well :)

Had a great birthday thanks for all the well-wishes!

You say its your BDAY!

Tomorrow is my big 3-0! I want to send a special shout-out to all of Mr. K and my friends who came out Sat night to wish us a Happy Birthday. Thanks for braving the Korean BBQ! We had a blast bowling afterwards.

And a special thanks to Mr. K and the Kevinitos for my beautiful necklace and matching earrings :)

Now I have seen everything.

As someone who likes to follow trends I am disturbed by the newest Xmas trend: upside down christmas trees. I shit you not. Upside down. As in hanging the dang tree from its stump via your ceiling. Why would someone do this? So there is more room for gifts under the tree. Is this what we have come too? Have we become so fixated about how to fit the tons of gifts we buy for people we dont even like? Keeping the damn ornaments on the tree is hard enough I couldn't image suspending a tree from a ceiling. Plus, my cat would have a shit fit if we couldn't sleep under my Xmas tree.

Anyway this is one trend Ms. N will happily skip over. I suggest you should also.

Baltimore seeks image makeover


BALTIMORE -- The city wants a makeover, or what's known in the tourism industry as "destination repositioning."

The Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association is paying Landor Associates $500,000 to revamp the city's image. The company already has built brands for such locations as Madrid, Spain; Florida and Hong Kong.

Baltimore has tried slogans before, including "Charm City," "The City that Reads," and "The Greatest City in America." None of them caught on. There have been other unflattering nicknames, though: The Heroin Capital and The Murder Capital.

Three critically acclaimed television crime and drug dramas shows are partly to blame, according to a recent report by the image consultants.

"The perception of Baltimore is "The Wire," "The Corner," "Homicide (Life on the Street)" ... a hopeless, depressed, unemployed, crack-addicted city," the report states.

The company is expected to come up with a half dozen concepts for Baltimore by next month, and a decision on the brand is expected by April.

In my opinion as someone who moved out of Bawlmore: Baltimore needs to work on their racial division and crime problems before they should hire someone to contruct a snappy logo. When people start feeling safe going out of their homes at nite people will have a better opinion of the city.


Go Fug Yourself.

I came upon this super funny blog last week. Its called Go Fug Yourself. What they do is bash pics of celebrities in their fugly outfits. This site isnt for women only, though it can be quite catty at times. (Hiss, hiss). I cant believe some people dare to walk out in public dressed the way they do :)

More Dodge Drama.

So far I have called Chrysler twice to get a godddamed copy of the power of attorney so I can register my car. This morning they said that they would fax me a copy of the letter. But only after I insisted that they do so because if I walk into the DMS tomorrow and they look at me like I have two heads when I ask them where the letter is, I am gonna freak out. So after telling me they would do it in an hour there was no fax. So 4 hours later I call back and get an uppity manager who keeps insisting that they sent the power of attorney to NJ. First he says they sent one to NY. I'm like "NY? I live in NJ!". After 5 minutes of going back and forth I get the fax.

Now my head hurts.

Eff Chrysler!


Happy Birthday to You Mr. K....

(In my best Marilyn Monroe voice)!

Big shoutout to Mr. K. who celebrated a berfday on Sunday!

I love you!

Not Right (EVAR!!!!!!!!!!!)

I got an email from work today that called me Mrs. XXXX. (Because I have some cyber stalkers I won't print my last name here but you get my drift). Anyway I am not MRS.XXXX!!!! What is wrong with these people?? Half of my emails come from staff who still think I am down at HQ. I left HQ in August! And now I get an email identifying me as a Mrs XXX. Christ on a craker.

TGIF man!

And that's Ms. Jackson if you're nasty!

At The End There Will Be Only Google.

I am a huge proponent of Google. Whenever I can't find an answer to something I "google" it. I have sold my co-workers on the concept. Today one of them told me that she "googled" something that she needed to find for work and found it within seconds. She thanked me for turning her on to the site. I should get royalties!
